"How Methodist Are You?

doctrine01Join Pastor Pete as he facilitates a five-week class on the great teachings of the Christian Church starting Wednesday, September 17, and concluding October 15.  The classes will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. each Wednesday.

Using the 10 documents that form the official doctrine of the United Methodist Church, participants will examine of what makes Church of the Palms part of the greater church universal and what makes us distrinctively United Methodist. You might be surprised just how Methodist you are!

Sign up using the online form below or sign up in the book in the Narthex.  A minimum of 8 participants are required to offer this class and material will be supplied by Pastor Pete to aid in this discussion. If you might be interested in participating in a light supper starting at 5:30 p.m., prior to the class, please indicate that too!  If enough people are interested we will plan that option.

Remembering and Celebrating
Exodus 12:1-14

This Sunday, September 7, we take a look back at the Book of Exodus as we focus on Exodus 12:1-14. This is the record of how God commanded Moses to establish the remembrance and celebration of the Passover.

In the instructions, God is ensuring the ritualized proclamation and passing on of the past core stories and traditions to a new set of eyes, ears and mouths. All this was for both the current people, new generations of children, and even the aliens or strangers present.


Rail Offerings

railofferring01Here at Church of the Palms we carry on the practice from early years of the Christian church when people were encouraged to bring "offerings for the poor" to their celebration of the Lord's Supper.

Such monetary gifts offered, and then left on the communion railing (often referred to as a "rail offering"), are placed in a special fund for use in providing assistance to those in the community, as well as those in our own congregation facing extra-ordinary financial challenges.
